The style of the table is beautiful (to our taste). The slightly tapered legs were thicker than expected, but great look (that's why I rated Fair). The mahogany stain is a rich red-chestnut color. The table was well-packed and appeared to arrive undamaged. That is until we took a closer look. Quarter size chip on one edge of the table, and on another side, a poor attempt at trying to cover up another defect in the veneer. On the edges that come together in the middle, the veneer is also flaking off. However, the leaf appears to be OK. The table size is 48" without the leaf. Disappointed,although we like the style and color, the quality is poor. thought we were buying a new table, not one that is defective and damaged. This is why I rated Poor.
Unlike the previous reviewer, my table arrived undamaged. It was easy to put together, and the result is a very sturdy table. The design fits perfectly with my decor. But . . . the finish is poor. The leaf didn't get stained properly around the edges, although I fixed with a furniture stain pen (not included, by the way). There are a couple of places where pits in the wood were filled with some material that turned black when the stain was applied. These spots are small, but noticeable. Lastly, the top coat was not evenly applied and in a certain light, it shows. In balance, I decided to keep the table, but I'm not as pleased with it as I hoped to be. My guess is that some of these tables are OK, and others are like mine -- barely acceptable. So if you decide to roll the dice and purchase, good luck.
Upon taking all the pieces out of the box in preparation for assembly, I noticed that one of the table top segments had a quarter sized chip in the veneer - which can not be scuffed out of masked....another piece had a large scratch which had the same negative implications - can't be repaired easily, I returned the table because of this and received a full refund.
